Synopsis

Walking the liminal space between perception and memory the film charts the emotional recovery of a family as they come to terms with their father's suicide that left them in financial ruin seven years ago. As they piece together fragments of a broken past, questions of memory, identity and love must be faced before the family can embrace the future.
Combining family home video archive with intimate footage captured in the West Midlands over two years, director Lucy Cohen examines how tragedy struggles towards hope.
